    Summary of recommendations

    Summary of Recommendations

    • Examine whether the technological choices made are optimal to reach the performance goals of the facility, and suggest eventual alternatives

      • CERN sputtering support appears small and somewhat fractured in terms of prioritised resource availability. Steps must be taken to strengthen the internal specialist sputtering support to help overcome existing performance limitations.

    • Very strong statement: The cold RF tests (3) of the prototype cavity have been plagued by a series of difficulties ranging from RF cavity specific problems, mechanical workshop availability, stability of cryogenics in SM18 which stem from lower priority with respect to other projects. The low performance of this prototype RF cavity remains to be understood.

    • A second prototype cavity was delivered in December and is presently being sputtered. This will allow a faster turnaround of these tests.

    • The reasons for a low turnaround during the past year have been reviewed with the stake holders : increased resources and an improved involvement will be deployed. During 2011 five test campaigns are planned to characterize these cavities.

    Summary of recommendations1

    Summary of Recommendations

    • Examine whether the technological choices made are optimal to reach the performance goals of the facility, and suggest eventual alternatives

      • CERN sputtering support appears small and somewhat fractured in terms of prioritised resource availability. Steps must be taken to strengthen the internal specialist sputtering support to help overcome existing performance limitations.

      • An IAP organised workshop proposed to formally review cavity testing status and provide option routes to R&D success. To be coordinated by Peter McIntosh (IAP) within the next 3 months.

    • Agree with the proposal to organize a workshop but in 6 months: once (i) we have conducted sufficient RF tests on the two prototype cavities; (ii) the pre-series cavity is constructed and tested

    February 2, 2011 | ISCC| Yacine Kadi | 17


    Summary of recommendations2

    Summary of Recommendations

    • Examine whether the technological choices made are optimal to reach the performance goals of the facility, and suggest eventual alternatives

      • Industrialisation of the cavity fabrication requires a concerted effort and a stronger CERN responsibility needs to be taken. The EU Interegional 600 kEuro grant demands industrial collaboration to deliver a complete cryomodule and this therefore must be enforced.

      • Cryogenic safety margin looks extremely tight compared to other facilities (30% c.f. 50% typically). Dynamic load from the linac will be the largest uncertainty due to cavity Qo variations and therefore suggest a re-assessment.

      • Cryo plant configuration would benefit from a dual cold box system, which would provide operational flexibility to clean-up system without having to warm-up the linac. A re-assessment should be made.

      • Concern on the cryomodule assembly which needs qualified expertise and cannot rely on inexperienced fellows and/or students. These resources must also remain available and consistent throughout the assembly period. Such critical CERN resources must be secured as appropriate.

      • Space constraints in existing linac configuration are problematic and an assessment of new cryomodule implementation should be made to identify scope for increased flexibility.

    February 2, 2011 | ISCC| Yacine Kadi | 18


    Summary of recommendations3

    Summary of Recommendations

    • Assess if the layout and equipment foreseen is well adapted to the scientific program as endorsed by the ISOLDE and n-TOF Committee (INTC)

      • It was agreed that the material with the details concerning this point will be asked and analyzed for the next meeting. However, it was stressed that for a good exploitation of the physics opportunities new equipments are needed and some are indeed under study.  

    • Ensure that the budget, manpower plan and time-line presented by the project management are realistic.

      • The CERN staffing contribution looks unbalanced between fellows and specialist staff, which should be redressed.

      • Implications of LHC manpower demand should to be factored into the delivery plan.

      • Key resources must be identified and their time continuity maximised in the project planning process, alerting IAP when conflicts arise immediately, particularly across the peak demand over 2012/13 period.

    February 2, 2011 | ISCC| Yacine Kadi | 19


    Summary of recommendations4

    Summary of Recommendations

    • Ensure that the budget, manpower plan and time-line presented by the project management are realistic.

      • Evaluate possibility of external installation/integration contracts utilising CERN materials budget. If such funds could be made available, this would mitigate critical LHC resource conflicts.

      • Contractual opportunities will require detailed specifications to be developed, which invariably will take more time and clear risk mitigation processes must be implemented to determine an optimum approach.

      • Collaboration with SPIRAL-2, particularly with regards to high energy beam development and manipulation should be explored, looking for synergetic areas across both projects.

    • Examine the quality assurance and safety aspects of the project.

      • Nice pre-study of the relevant radiation safety issues presented and no critical issues identified from the IAP. Propose that choice on having the experimental hall open or closed should be determined rapidly, so that hall layout and radiation safety provisions are clearly understood to facilitate installation planning and preparations.

    February 2, 2011 | ISCC| Yacine Kadi | 20


    Summary of recommendations5

    Summary of Recommendations

    • Comment on the management structure and communication and collaboration strategies

      • Appropriate and demonstrated project and documentation management processes in place.

      • The impact of the requirement on the beam bunching needs to be understood better as space availability is extremely limited. The consequent implications and appropriate coordination need to be imposed.

    • More generally advise the project management on the actions necessary to ensure that HIE- ISOLDE becomes a unique and world-leading RIB user facility

      • Strongly encourage pursuance of 10 MeV/u capability and high intensity design study, however presently emphasis should remain on completing in time the 5MeV/u linac based upon funding profile anticipated.
